Still lots of work to do, but i am having a damn good time working on it. I just have to put all the other projects out of my head for a while in order to finish this one. BTW, does anyone know what the bearing and race #'s are for a head set on a BSA A65 frame? Damned ball bearings are a pain..... anyways, here is where i am as of tonite. thoughts? criticisms? I am really new to this cycle stuff, so i am all ears.....

I bought some 7/8" O.D. heavy wall DOM tubing and got busy with it. Triumph Terror turned me onto some axle plates at a very reasonable cost. I was gonna cut my own but the ones Shoe had were really nice. I think i have the hardest part of any project (for me) already done. I have the colors picked out! No metalflake-ing the frame cuz i have to hear shoe bitch about his all the time.hahahaaa

SRM Engineering has a conversion kit that uses taper roller bearings, well worth the money.

Its a sportster tank. I have an idea for a simple, but i think effective change on it. I am kinda torn between doing a lot of the little detail stuff now and RIDING the damned thing.
